Policies and Payments


  • The Scientific Illustration Office provides illustration and multimedia services to all faculty, staff, and students of Biological Sciences at the University of Connecticut as well as other departments within the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences (CLAS).
  • Services are available to non-CLAS customers but only as time allows and CLAS customers will have priority.
  • In order to maintain the high quality of professional service generated by this multi-faceted office, we constantly evaluate the graphic needs of the faculty, graduate students and staff, schedule work and set priorities to meet deadlines and provide asquick a turn-around time as possible. We try to assure adequate inventory of equipment and supplies and maintain state-of-the-art computer software and hardware while remaining compatible with existing equipment.
  • We take great pride in the professional quality of our work and customer service is a high priority. If you have any problems with your order, please let us know. We are more than willing to talk with you and perhaps redo your order at our expense to meet your satisfaction. However, we are not responsible for pre-existing errors in files or materials you may have brought us.


  • All orders must be paid at time of pick up.
  • Using an KFS (Kuali Financial System) Account is the most common form of payment. It is the accounting system used by the University of Connecticut to prepare accounting transactions. Sales tax is not charged on orders that are paid for this way. Please bring an FRS number with you when placing a work order.
  • A Transfer Voucher (BO-20) is an intra-university form used to authorize and process payment for services/products rendered, departmental corrections and posting adjustments. This type of payment may also be used.
  • Cash or Check. If you do not have access to an FRS Account or Transfer Voucher, you can still place your order and pay for it when you pick it up using cash or personal check made out to “UConn”.
